Yup, that’s what it’s all about. Recognizing and seeing the miracles in our every day life. The miracle of Chanukah reminds us to take those precious moments and be grateful for them.

Brownie Roll-Out Driedel Cookies
Recipe Type: Dessert
Author: Chana Scop
Recipe adapted from [url href=”” target=”_blank”]Smitten Kitchen[/url].
  • 3 cups (375 grams) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon (3 grams) salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup (225 grams) butter, softened (I used Earth Balance Margarine)
  • 1 1/2 (300 grams) cups sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon (5 ml) vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
  1. Preheat oven at 350 degrees. Whisk flour, salt and baking powder in bowl and set aside. Mix butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla and cocoa in mixer. Gradually add flour mixture, and mix until smooth. Wrap in plastic and chill for at least one hour.

  3. Roll out cookie dough on floured counter. Cut into desired shapes, brushing extra deposits of flour off the top. (It does disappear once baked, though, so don’t overly fret if they go into the oven looking white.) Bake on a parchment-lined baking sheet for 8 to 11 minutes (the former for 1/8-inch thick cookies, the latter for 1/4-inch cookies) until the edges are firm and the centers are slightly soft and puffed.

  5. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Enjoy!
